20 Purrfect Pet Projects for Your Furry Friends

We love our pets, sometimes more than our family members (it’s ok, you can admit it). These 20 Purrfect Pet Projects for Your Furry Friends will help you show that love to your ever-adoring animals. Among these DIY pet projects, you’ll find ideas to keep your four-legged family member comfy, healthy, happy, and full. Your puppy (they’re all puppies no matter their age) will gobble down the DIY dog food you make. Just imagine how entertained your kitty will be with the homemade cat toy you create. You already can do no wrong in the eyes of your pet, so treating them with a homemade pet project will only make their love for you grow.

This collection includes projects for a variety of skill levels, so you are guaranteed to find something to create for your pet. Some of these projects are really more for you than your pet, like a dog leash hack that allows you to easily walk two dogs with one hand, or a lovely bench with a hidden litter box and storage for all your pet’s things. Find the purrfect project for you and your pet below.

DIY Pet Bed

Your furry friends deserve a comfy place to lay their heads at night. Instead of going out and buying one, just make one for them instead, with love of course. Whether you are comfortable with the needle and thread or not, you can make a diy pet bed worthy of your four-legged family member. Try creating a no-sew dog bed, or repurpose a suitcase to be a DIY cat bed. Get creative and build a multi-purpose cat bed/litter box/cat food storage bench. Whatever you skill level or style preference, you can find a pet bed project below that will make your pet feel right at home.

DIY Pet Food

Treat your pet to some home cooking by trying some of these cat and dog treat recipes. When you make homemade pet food, you’ll know exactly what your pet is eating. No need to worry about strange chemicals or mystery ingredients listed on the backs of pet food containers, these DIY pet food recipes have only healthy ingredients to help your pet thrive. Imagine how excited your canine friends will be when they realize the entire cookie sheet of homemade bacon dog treats is for them. Treat your feline friends to an easy salmon snack that they will love. With just a little time and effort, you can make your pets the homemade treats they deserve.

DIY Pet Toys

You know how excited pets get when you give them a new toy. Don’t worry about finding the money to buy a new toy for your pets; simply make your own. Your furry friend will absolutely adore anything you give them to play with. You could give a dog an old shoe and he would play with it for years. Instead of an old shoe though, make a new DIY dog toy for Fido. We didn’t forget you cat lovers out there; try a fun felt DIY cat toy and see how much fun your cat has with it.

Pet Shampoo Recipes and Insect Repellent

It may not be our favorite part of pet ownership, but they do get dirty and we must bathe them. With DIY pet projects like homemade flea repellent and dog shampoo recipes, you can save a bit of cash and leave the store products on the shelf. Don’t forget to protect your pet from fleas and other insects as well. Try making your own DIY flea repellent the next time you pet needs protection. We want our pets to be as clean and healthy as possible, and we can help out by making these DIY products for pets.

This a very great collection.I can admit that i love my cats comfortably. what i found most useful was the flea repellent tutorial and the litter box one. Very helpful ideas here. Bath times for my kittens is such a hassle cause they normally dont like water but they need to be clean and the shampoo recipe came in handy.
